Elks Club rejects offer to vacate 15th and Trinity Drive

It appears the county will be forced back to the drawing board if Elks Club members refuse to reverse their vote Monday evening rejecting an offer to sell their property in the heart of the proposed Municipal Building site at 15th and Trinity Drive.

County Administrator Max Baker said earlier this week, “I hadn’t heard about the vote but the offer is made by the developer – not by the county, so we’ll have to meet with the developer to see what steps they’re going to take now.”

Council Chair James Hall also had not heard about the vote when contacted early in the week.

“My reaction is that I’m really disappointed,” Hall said. “I can’t predict what staff will do or what council will do. First, let’s be sure what the vote was and then let’s understand the motivation and if it can’t be easily addressed then I’d say the placement of the Municipal Building at 15th and Trinity is in doubt.”
